Popular Korean actor Kim Woo Bin, who has starred in hit K-dramas like The Heirs and Uncontrollably Fond, was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer back in 2017, to the shock of many fans.


He then went on an indefinite hiatus to focus on treatment, with his actress girlfriend, Shin Min Ah, staying by his side giving him full support. Thankfully, the 31-year-old has made his return to the public eye in better health in the past year or so, partaking in photoshoots and filming for his upcoming movie.

In photos posted to his Instagram account a few days back, Kim Woo Bin stunned with his buff physique, showing how he has successfully bounced back from cancer.
